I’ve seen some of my fellow bloggers doing posts on their top recipes of 2010 and out of curiosity, I wanted to check my stats as well. As I look back on 2010, and my blog, I feel very proud and a big sense of accomplishment. I just started this blog in September and have already had so much fun learning new things and meeting new people. I am really excited for 2011 – to continue growing personally and professionally, as well as meeting new people and building new relationships!
I have my top viewed recipe data gathered and here are my top 5 recipes (as dictated by my Google Analytics):
1. Simple Body Scrub – This is my go-to shower accessory, especially in the winter. This scrub helps slough off all that dry skin and helps seal in the moisture from the coconut and almond oils. I highly recommend giving it a try, especially if you’re like me and suffer from severely dry skin (thanks to our dry Colorado air).
2. Basic Farmer’s Cheese Recipe – This homemade cheese is so simple to make and it tastes delicious. If you’ve never attempted making cheese at home, start with this recipe and you will immediately feel a sense of success. This should give you the confidence to tackle more difficult cheese recipes. There is nothing as good as homemade cheese!
3. Homemade Blackening Seasoning – Why am I not surprised that this is in my top recipes? Well, probably because I use it in pretty much everything. I just can’t get enough of it. It add such a depth of flavor that you really can’t get anywhere else. Plus, it’s worlds cheaper to make your own than to buy it in the grocery store. Plus, you don’t get any of those tasty ingredients like MSG and anti-caking agents.
4. Crustless Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars – I just posted this recipe this week and I am shocked (and very proud) of how much traffic it has received. These bars are a fantastic treat – lightly sweetened and they travel well. Take them to a dinner party (or your New Year’s Eve bash) and watch them disappear. But, remember to serve them with a BIG dollop of fresh whipped cream!
5. Spicy Crockpot Chicken – This recipe was inspired by my friend Penelope and it has been a big hit. It’s so easy to make. You can just set it and forget about it and then come evening, you have a delicious, very hearty dinner waiting. This is another go-to recipe, especially in the winter crockpot season.
